11:46 pm
anyway and fran thought we would talk about villa nova big win, are you shocked? >> not shocked but we think wisconsin is outstanding and a great team and played great and villanova and the game changed with the three shot with less than 15 minutes to go on out of bounds play shot it and they are a really good team, there is nothing to be ashamed of. >> actually purdue had the coach came out and say they got robbed by the committee and wisconsin is not an 8th seat how good are these guys? >> a lot of teams were miss seated for example wisconsin certainly they deserved a better seat than the 8th seat and it just happened to be where villanova had the match with them but two really good teams and a great basketball game. >> something that was hard to overlook were the struggles of chris jenkins who was last
11:47 pm
year's hero and boy did he ever struggle, he was four for 22 in the tournament. 0-8 and three-point lead and you know this kid and how do you feel for him? >> you do but i will tell you he made one of the best defensive plays of the game where he got out of the fourth foul with a lot of time left and jenkins stepped up and made the block and took the charts so i think there is other ways you can help obtain it and doesn't always happen where you will score and make shots there is other ways and think jenkins did that. jeff skversky was with the team in buffalo and caught up with chris right after the game. >> i mean, it's just tough, tough to lose any time so we are all competitive and all want to win so you know losing always hurts. >> if you look back at this are you going to go and just one more bucket, one more free throw and we could have won this thing? >> i mean doing that does nothing for us right now, but
11:48 pm
you know we are always learning from the loss just like we do from a win so probably the way our team battled today and they made a lot of tough plays down the stretch so a lot of credit goes to them, but i'm proud of our team and the guys that are here. >> reporter: part of the winningest senior class in villanova history and brings us to jay wright and you exchanged text messages with the coach how is he holding up? >> great as well as anybody, a class act under control all the time, everything that comes out of his mouth is well thought out and very well said so i think he will learn from it. they all will learn from it. i think what he also talked about is the abruptness of these guys careers especially three seaters obviously with reynolds had a tremendous four-year career and jenkins had a tremendous four-year career and player of the year and their college basketball careers are
11:49 pm
over and the abruptness is there. >> do you think it's fair that jay will now face some questions you know skeptics are going to say last year was a fluke and have been knocked out three of the last four years in the second weekend is that fair? >> absolutely not. and any of us would change places with them in the national champion, he has done an unbelievable job the last number of years that villanova's program has been where it is and deserves credit with a wonderful job. >> we were there last night late as the team got back to campus and her is jay wright last night. >> we are still hurting and it's part of being a player you know, there is a lot of great ups you know when you are really feeling great and the downs are tough man but it's part of being an athlete, part of being a college basketball player, we all have to deal with our guys handling it well but they are down and probably for a few days. >> jay wright a class act and shift gears and three heart breaks and there was nova and
11:50 pm
the penn women who lost and the lady owls short and losing the last five seconds. >> they had a tremendous season and one of the young ladies works with us in the office and she spends some time with us on an intern idea and she is a terrific kid and would have been phenomenal in that last shot would have gone for the young lady already made a great block on the play but deserve a lot of credit and she did a wonderful job and had a great great season. >> 24-8 for the lady owls nothing to be up set about and coming up, a little more march madness and the flyers facing a must win in action and fargo center and wait until you see the ending that and more when action sports sunday returns. ♪ clear cloer

that still can be a winner in this thing and they need to get great pedigree with kansas, kentucky and carolina would be the three favorites at this point but they will do each other before the final game of course but there are really good teams left here. >> coach picking north carolina how about ucla and still alive and will go with them. >> you should be very proud of their program, we talked a little bit about lonzo a spectacular player and this is a one and done experience for him but he is doing it very very well. >> let's move on to the flyers just when you are about to count these guys out they reel you back this and steve mason back this for ten games and 7 points out and 12 to play and they created this opportunity and dale off the rebound and flyers 2-0 and carolina three straight and flyers could not clear it on power play and a 3-2 lead late but with 42.9 seconds to play
